You know, as I look back on highschool and grade school, Im starting to think that the best thing most of my teachers could have done for me was to give me this url: http://www.khanacademy.org and then shut up.
I read somewhere that the use of flight simulators to train pilots decreased the incidence of pilot error in flying by 70%.
What is a flight simulator?
Well I’ll tell you what it’s not…
It’s not a book.
It is in fact a device that allows you to experience the rigours of flying with one important exception; when you die in the simulator, you get to come back!
It’s video game ethics man!
I HAVE MANY LIVES!
Once you take the fear and finality of death out of the equation, what is left is a freedom to learn unabated. You reveal a path of infinite possibilities. This endless repetition hones ones intuition to a near instantaneous reaction time. Immersion technology could be to education what writing was to memory!
Epic in terms of paradigm shift.
